5. Gold and Money

5. Gold and Money

Gold - Panning for gold goes large-scale in this gigantic mine in Peru where truckloads of earth are sifted in search of treasure. Here we see the gold as it is poured, molded and stacked. Money: The Durability Lab - Is your money tough enough? In Washington, D.C., technicians torture dollar bills to see if they will stand up to our abuse. Mutilated Money - Trash or cash? That's the question in Washington, D.C., where extraordinary detectives examine paper money that has been damaged by floods, fires, or even just ripped up. Quarters - Here we follow a shiny-new quarter, from the artist's initial design to minting in Philadelphia and shipping to banks around the world. Tokyo Stock Exchange - Japanese stock traders shun the riotous frenzy of the Wall Street crowd with their own silent market, where discreet hand signals mark the action. Yen - Making money is an art in Japan. Come with us and see how the paper yen is designed, printed and inspected by hand. 04/10DE PI 12 min.
